Move the Butte

February 22, 23 & 24 2024

This inclusive dance experience features Gunnison Valley adults and celebrates many dance styles.  


Move the Butte is a community dance production starring over 100 Crested Butte and Gunnison local dancers! Move the Butte is an important opportunity for adults to perform on stage and share this dance experience with their friends, family, and other aspiring artists in our rural community. This production showcases dance styles such as Ballet, Tap, Aerial, Lyrical, Modern, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Jazz, Burlesque, and more! This production has been running for 14 years, approximately 1,200 audience members watch Move the Butte each year, and we encourage any new participants to join us! The mission of Move the Butte is to deepen the connection to ourselves, each other, and the world around us through dance. We are a community-based, educational production that fosters adult creativity, self-expression, and personal growth through professional dance instruction and performance opportunities.

The support of our sponsors enables us to continue producing Move the Butte each year. It allows us to cover the costs of the theater rental, technical support, and staffing and keep MTB affordable to all participants and audience members. Thank you to our 2023 Partners who generously supported Move the Butte!
